Professor Cass Sunstein will be visiting the Behavioural Insights Team next week. Cass is the co-author of Nudge and previous head of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs under President Obama.
This visit coincides with the publication of Cass’ new book, ‘Simpler: The Future of Government’, which builds on the thinking outlined in Nudge. Cass will be speaking at a Round Table in 10 Downing Street, and meeting with various Ministers and senior officials. He will also be giving a number of talks during his visit, including lectures at the British Academy, the Institute for Government and Cambridge University.
Cass has been a consistent proponent of BIT’s approach and we’re looking forward to hearing about his recent work in more detail. We are fortunate to have his ongoing support, as well of course, as that of his long time collaborator, Professor Richard Thaler.
